ABOUT THE SPEAKER — Isabelle Lam
Isabelle is a registered dietitian, and the co-founder of Remix Snacks. She started Remix back in 2018 during the last year of her undergraduate degree at McGill. Being in the food industry, she knew they could create healthier bean-based snack alternatives with upcycled ingredients, to reduce food waste. Over the last 5 years, she’s grown their start-up from a school project, to airing on Dragons’ Den, to their snacks now being sold in over 510+ retailers across Canada.
